Researchers with the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany have managed to store quantum information in a single atom. The researchers wrote the quantum state of single particles of light, called photons, into a rubidium atom and read it out again after a certain storage time. This technique could potentially be used to design powerful quantum computers and to network them with each other across large distances.more →
Asus really revolutionized the world when it introduced its first generation of netbooks, the market has grown rapidly since that time and Asus continues to wow us with new netbooks.
